The Indianapolis Colts added a familiar face to their roster on Wednesday with a lot of roster movement ongoing. According to NFL reporter Aaron Wilson, the Colts signed former Houston Texans wide receiver KeKe Coutee to their practice squad.
Coutee had 33 receptions for 400 yards and three touchdowns for the Texans last season. Against the Colts, Coutee has been a thorn in the defenses side over the last three years. Since Coutee joined the NFL in 2018-19, 38 of his 94 (40.4%) career receptions have been against the Colts.
Coutee joins a loaded wide receiver room, however he could see time on the 53-man roster with T.Y. Hilton’s uncertain status due to a disc injury. Being able to provide versatility as a weapon in the slot plus as a return specialist, Coutee could be a protected practice squad player moving forward with Indianapolis.
With Coutee’s arrival, he joins a crowder wide receiver group on the practice squad including DeMichael Harris, Tarik Black and Tyler Vaughns.
